Scharlakansröd vaxskivling

Scharlakansröd vaxskivling, Hygrocybe punicea är en svamp i skivlingfamiljen. Detta är en ganska nätt miniatyr svamp som känns igen villig sin klart blodröda hattfärg. Foten är lite orangeaktig samt köttet är gult. Växer helst villig hagmarker, skada ibland i skog. Försåvitt man åstadkommer en stuvning villig svampen blir stuvningen rosafärgad! Kan misstas för den liknande toppvaxskivlingen av ovana svampplockare. Västergötlands landskapssvampto

 

One of the largest of the waxcaps, Hygrocybe punicea is an infrequent   find on cropped grassland and regularly mown churchyards. It occurs in late   summer and autumn. This lovely waxcap often occurs in small clusters, and when young it is   sometimes covered with a whitish bloom. Initially deep blood red, the caps   develop paler  patches as they age.

The Crimson Waxcap is often confused with the much-more-common Scarlet Waxcap, Hygrocybe      coccinea, generally a smaller and more gregarious mushroom with a paler red cap that is often yellowish towards the margin even when young and not fully expanded.
